Why does God allow wars?
“If there is an all-powerful God behind the scenes,” people often ask, “why would He allow such horrible wars? Why doesn’t He put a stop to all that if He’s in control?”
Although God hates war and its blood-thirsty perpetrators and IS soon going to intervene and set things right when He “destroys them that destroy the Earth” (Rev.11:18), He hasn’t yet, because in so doing, He would have had to put a stop to the main idea of His whole Great Design–Man’s choice!
Man brings all this evil upon himself through his own sins, his own hand, literally dying by his own hand because of his refusal to receive the Lord, follow God or obey His Word! But if the people would just turn to the Lord and repent of their sins and ask for His forgiveness, He would lift the curse, and there would be wars no more!–But they won’t! So He has to let the wars come and all the horrors that Man brings upon himself, to show what a mess Mankind is without the Lord!
Are you a person of peace?–Or a wager of war! “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God!” (Mat.5:9) Join the peacemakers and help bring peace to the hearts, minds, and souls of men, through the Prince of Peace, Jesus!–Who will soon take over and stop Man’s wars!
The Bible says, “He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust!” (Psa.103:14), having worn that frame Himself, suffering in it and dying in it for our sakes! He came down here to our level that He might take us with Him back up to His! What a miracle, all for our sakes!
Children are the most sincere people in the World.–And they’re at the age of malleability when they can still be bent and molded. It’s an age of choice, an age of decision. It takes time and patience and understanding and lots of real love to reach them but that’s actually when most people accept the Lord.
“Open the door for the children,
Tenderly gather them in,
In from the highways and hedges,
In from the fields of sin.”
–For of such is the Kingdom of God! (Mk.10:14)
Lord, make us what You want us to be, the blessing You want us to be, to help lonely hopeless helpless hearts who need Your Love. Your Salvation brings the joy and the love and the healing balm that cleanses every heart and heals every wound and removes every stain. Help us to reach them, Lord, with Thy precious Love and the Good News of happiness and Love that lasts forever! Break our hearts, Lord, melt us, make us compassionate, make us long to help others, to encourage and help them, heal them and lift them. In Jesus’ name we ask for Thy glory. Amen!
But God loves to be put on the spot because He knows He’ll never fail as long as we meet the conditions, exercise our faith in prayer and obey His Word. And when He answers, it will be a testimony to His Word and His faithfulness, as well as to our own faith in expecting a specific answer! So tell Him exactly what you need or want done, and He won’t fail!
